The Greek Islands, by Lawrence Durrell

This classic guide to the history and culture of the Greek Islands by Larry Durrell is a personal love letter to Greece written in Durrell's famously lush and heady yet casual prose. Filled with evocative details and first-hand stories in tandem with ancient myths and history lessons, this book is illustrated with black and white as well as color photographs of daily life and beautiful vistas from the Greek Islands of the 1960s and 70s. 

Fans of the excellent BBC television series, The Durrells of Corfu, may be pleased to observe that The Greek Islands is dedicated to Doctor Theodore Stephanides. 

Printed in Great Britain by Penguin Books. Softcover. 287 pp. C.1980
